Well, sushi night has been postponed to tonight; his flight back from Canada was delayed a few hours and he came home exhausted.
Last night, I made a quick pasta dish, that I love making in the spring time, but it’s a dish you can eat anytime really.
Cheese Tortellini with Peas:
1 package of fresh cheese tortellini (frozen is fine too)
1/2 package frozen peas
1/4 cup of water
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic chopped
1 medium yellow onion chopped
1/4 cup grated cheese, either Pecorino or Parmigiano
Cook tortellini 3 minutes shy of the instructions (they will finish cooking with the peas).
In a skillet on medium heat, heat up oil. Add garlic and onions, cook until translucent.
Add peas and the water, cook covered for 5 minutes;
Lower the heat to low/medium then add in the pasta and cook the dish covered until the pasta is al dente and peas are tender.
Once cooked, remove pan from heat, add in cheese. Then serve topped with additional cheese, if desired.
